Thomas Tuchel will not become the new manager of Arsenal because there will be no vacancy in the summer according to Raphael Honigstein, meaning Arsene Wenger will manage the side through the 2018/19 season.

Tuchel had reportedly agreed a deal to join Arsenal in the summer and this set off a bit of a social media frenzy amongst some fans.

But the report always seemed odd given the fact that there is no actual vacancy at Arsenal and it looked very much like Arsene Wenger would see out the final year of his contract.


Raphael Honigstein [@honigstein] on Tuchel to Arsenal: “All the indications in Germany, in London, is that he’s not going to Arsenal for the very simple reason that Arsenal have a coach who is not leaving.” [BBC]

It seems that’s exactly what’s going to happen.

If you believe all the reports in the press, then Thomas Tuchel is going to make up for year out of the game by taking on three jobs at once – Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Chelsea (and possibly even PSG, too).

Of course, he isn’t really, but it does show how little real information is out there and how much is guesswork and agent games.
